This week in review

25th February to 3rd March

In the previous edition, we mentioned Sri Lanka creating a stir on their tour of South Africa. Well, they have now become the first Asian nation to go on to win a test series in South Africa, proving the heroics in the first test was no fluke. The form of the host nation is below par, but this must not take anything away from the achievement of a so called minnow in test cricket. May we continue to see great upsets in world sport! In the Six Nations men's competition Wales produced another great second half performance to beat England and remain as the only unbeaten team. England women remain the favourites to take the title this year. 

In snow sports we are approaching the final week at Seefeld in Austria where the FIS World Championships are being held for Cross-Country, Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping. Whistler in Canada is the venue for the Bobsleigh World Championships from Friday to Sunday, while one of the biggest event in University Sports starts on Saturday. The 29th FISU Winter Universiade will be welcomed by Krasnoyarsk in Russia. The Skibob World Tour also reaches the grand final in Paseky, Czech Republic, while Vrchlabí in the same nation hosts the 17th FAI World Para-Ski Championships. 

In Aquatics World Diving and Artistic Swimming begin the first events on the World Tour Series, while Kite Surfing and Bowling also start their World Tours. Over the current weekend, we had the World Golf Championships for men in Mexico City, while Singapore will welcome the women for the equivalent event from Thursday to Sunday. In cycling the third UCI WorldTour event for 2019 starts today in the United Arab Emirates, while on Wednesday Pruszków in Poland hosts the UCI Track Cycling World Championships. For those patiently waiting on the Motocross season to start, Sunday is finally here for the first race of 2019 at Neuquen, Argentina. In Para Sports we have Wheelchair Curling in Stirling and Paratriathlon in Devonport.
